Hello

I've basically had enough of vbulletin now and after reading some of the mods available now for ipb it looks like ill be making the jump but if possible could you answer me some questions first please.

On my current vbulletin forum i have the downloadsII mod on there with loads of downloads in my downloads section,
Will i be able to import all my downloads to ipb please??
What exactly gets brought over from my vbulletin board when i import/convert the stuff from my vbulletin board to IPB??

Thanks guys look forward to hearing from ya.

The downloads mod is a third party app for vb, so it's not something that would get imported, you would need to manually add them back to ip.downloads after the conversion.

Or contract a third party to write a converter script for your mod.

You'd need your friend to add you as an alternative contact then you can post in the IP.Downloads support forum, or they could post there themselves. :)
